Region XI

Regional Conference

Conference Venue

Built in 1902 and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1986, the 5-star Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, NH will serve as our venue for the 2017 NAFSA XI Regional Conference. Nestled in the White Mountains with a breathtaking backdrop of Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast (6,288 ft), the resort will provide a relaxing atmosphere for colleagues to gather and share valuable information and best practices.

Interesting Fact: The hotel is the site of the historical Bretton Woods Agreement, signed in July 1944. The agreement established the International Monetary Fund as well as the entity that would later become the World Bank. Here's some history on the 1944 conference.

Currently, all three properties at the Resort are booked. Alternate hotel space has been secured at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Lodge in Crawford Notch, just a short 4 mile drive down the road. Rooms range from $104 to $149 plus tax and include private and shared bathroom options. Please call (603) 466-2727 and reference Group #378410 and the group name NAFSA Regional Conference. No meals are included since the conference fee includes all meals starting Wednesday morning.

Alternately, if you would like to be on a waitlist for the Resort, please add your name below. People will be notified if anything opens up in the order they submitted the request.
